Letters to the editor: President Obama proves to be an 'Artful Dodger'

8:32 PM, Nov. 16, 2013  |  Comments

Obama is a master at deflecting blame or responsibility for misdeeds in his administration or presidency. He deserves the title of "Artful Dodger" as he has deflection down to and art form. Just a few examples include: 1. The Benghazi attack (laying blame for 10 days on a video no one saw); 2. Tapping Germany's Angela Merkel's phone ( I Know Nothing); 3. In advisably declaring there would be military action if a red line was crossed by Syria (letting Congress or the Russians get him off the hook). 4. The IRS targeting anti-Obama groups ( it was some low level employee in Cincinnati who did it); 5. Illegally searching the phone logs of the press, then have (Attorney General Eric) Holder fabricate that he was under suspicion for criminality).

And the grand-daddy, 6. You can keep your doctor and your health plan if you like them under the Affordable Health Care Act (showing no guilt or shame trying to parse a repeated bald faced lie). T.S. Elliot wrote a book of children's poems about cats, which later became the Broadway musical CATS. He describes many cats, including a lazy cat, a fat cat, a glamour cat and a "Mystery Cat". The mystery cat is never around after he commits illegal, shameful, or covert acts. If you substitute the name Obama for the mystery cat named Macavity, TS Elliot's poetry reads as follows, "There never was a cat of such deceitfulness and suavity, He always had an alibi, or one or two to spare, and whatever time the deed took place, Obama wasn't there."
